“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

We loved it here the food was great all at a reasonable price.parking was easy. The portions perfect. The only set back but not a huge problem was they did tend to move you on a bit.Maybe they had a busy night.

“Small portions, long wait but nice view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

Got a takeout, and the naan breads were almost half of the size as you would expect, even though they were far from cheap! The other food is nice, but you have a wide choice of other takeaways in Bideford, so try somewhere else where you won't get a huge, rowdy party! There are other Indians in Bideford that are cheaper and have quicker service, but if you want the view, then come here.

“Better Indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Had a nice meal, good food but the staff had a bit of difficulty understanding me. The food was very good but the naan bread was a bit different than usual. Big restaurant would definitely eat here again.

“Generally good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

Set in a grand converted upstairs room it lacks the intimacy of some other Indian restaurants. If you want a small cosy place playing Indian music in the background, candles, artwork etc then this is probably not the place for you. Having said that if you can get a table by the window it is nice to look out across the river at night while you eat. I have been here several times and cannot really fault the food BUT the last time I had a meal there appeared to be a total changeover of staff. The food was 'average' and a bit disappointing considering the delicious meals we have had in the past. Hopefully this was just a blip on the Spice's performance.
